I've just installed my old Radeon 4860 on my girlfriend's PC, running an old WinXP (SP2, if I'm not mistaken... yes, I know it's sad), and noticed a strange phenomenon: on any resolutions higher 1600x1200 it seems like the resolution only affects the operating system, but not the monitor, so it appears that only a part of the desktop is displayed. 

The driver is up-to-date, the monitor definitely supports higher resolutions and did so flawlessly until the old (unknown brand) card broke down, and also the card seems to think that there are two monitors, though it doesn't explain the resolution issue.

I'd much appreciate any help in solving this issue.

Thanks in advance!
